What is United's domestic first class like? Any good pictures of it or the seat? Do you think it is better or worse than other us domestic first classes? I am flying from DCA to ORD on UAL in first class, what will that be like, i hope good!?

DCA-ORD, what's the segment time 70-80 minutes? Probably a couple drinkies and a bag of nutz. Maybe you'll even get the drinkies in glass not plastic! I don't think UA has gone the plastic and styro route in F. I wouldn't expect a snack of any consequence, but I could be wrong . . . someone from UA could better answer that . . .
Yup, the seat is boring, but think of it this way, it's not in Y

Your flight is so short that I wouldn't spend the extra money for domestic first class, if I were you. You'll get a bigger seat and free alcohol, if you like that stuff, but that's about it. If you want to enjoy domestic first class on United, fly transcon or any flight longer than 3 hours. Don't get me wrong. I love United. But I know on what segments to fly first and what segments not to.

I flew IAD-ORD on a 744 in C class, and we were given a dinner of cold salmon (tastes better than it sounds!) with some rice or something. I'd imagine they might serve something in F class from DCA, but then again, I could be wrong. Depends on time of day really.

Dunno about you guys, UA 757 F domestic to me is much more comfortable than in 767-300 F domestic. Like the above posters have mentioned, on some segments sometimes it's just not worth it. Sometimes I wish they brought back the old F seats with the footrests!

Having made the trip between DCA and ORD a few times first class on UA, I can tell you it all depends on what time the flights are. Really early flights won't get you anything but a snack bar while later flights will get you a meal. The meals have always been pretty good when you get them.
One other thing to remember flying first class to/from DCA. Always remember to look for senators and congressmen! Last time home from DCA, I sat next to my congressman!

Sorry but I am going to give my honest opinion. I think United's First no matter
what plane is really bad and outdated. I think when and if they have the money they should change it and make it more confortable for taller people. Being taller and a little heavier at such a young age with a lot more growing to do...I am going to have troubles traveling commercially.....but I think UA's First is honestly crap

Regarding someones question of why you have a lounge if no Intl flights depart:
Quite simply because a lot of other people (most business) use the lounges when flying domestically. I use it all the time mostly to just find a quiet place if I need to have a phone call - or a conference all together (they have conference room). A lot of times I use it to connect via my laptop back to work to send/recieve e-mails. When I was commuting weekly between Seattle and Florida via IAD or ORD it would give me enough time to send/recieve e-mails and get caught up on things before the next flight. Even when I just do a simple IAD-SEA or JFK-SFO having a bit of time to catchup prior to your flight can be amazingly helpful.
: An airport doesn't have to have international service for there to be a lounge. Remember, these are membership programs with access extended to *A Gol
: Don't confuse the UA International First Class lounge with United's Red Carpet Club. The Red Carpet Club requires a yearly membership fee and is avail
